Apologies for another beginner question. I’ve seen several questions about whether to handle input in the controller or the character several times, but also seen several different answers. Some answers I’ve seen include:
- Handling input in the pawn, using the controller mainly as a means of keeping important, persistant information, like score.
- Handling input in the controller, differentiating between potentially different control schemes via an event or variable.
- Handling potentially different input via different, multiple controllers, switching between them, as needed.
- Making a standard controller that just passes input information to whatever pawn is being controlled, letting the pawn interpret the input as it likes.
Which of these is the “right” way, or is there even a right way? Are all these valid approaches, depending on game needs? 1 makes the most sense to me and is how I did things before, but I always see a “good for simple controls” asterisk next to it in answers.
